Dear Pre-k Families
Last week, we finished up our Construction Zone theme with a week of Art. We talked about different forms of art and ways to create art. We made a band and explored art with musical instruments. We read some fun books by Herve Tule called Mix it up and Press Here. We explored mixing paint colors to make new colors. We also read a book by David McKee called Elmer. Elmer is a patchwork elephant that just wants to look like everyone else. We tied a story extension to art by making our own Kandinsky-inspired Elmers! We used Kandinsky’s Squares with Concentric Circles for inspiration. We finished up our week with a fun story called I’m Not Just a Scribble… by Dian Alber. We made our own ‘Scribble’ inspired drawings. It was a fun week.
This week, we started our new theme, Growing and Changing. During this theme, we will explore growing up healthy, eating healthy and how plants grow. We are starting Number Bootcamp and we will be working on numbers 1-20 for the next 20 days. We will celebrate Earth Day as we talk about being responsible for taking care of God’s creation. We are also working on the letter X and beginning sounds.
Please remember to make sure you get your child registered for Kindergarten so that you have a spot reserved. If you are not sure, please make an appointment to see Mrs. Blackburn to talk it out. Don’t forget to order books from the Scholastic book order. There are so many great book choices and ordering books helps our preschool get free books. Please watch your email for information from Mrs. Mary about our Little Caesars Pizza fundraiser. You can share the link with family and friends and have delicious pizza kits delivered right to your door.
If you are in need of child care this summer, please see Mrs. Mary for registration.
